Led by Fr. Anton Altnoeder SJ & Team

These Retreats, with individual daily guidance, are for those seeking an Introduction to the Contemplative Way of Praying & Living and to the Jesus Prayer, in the way of Fr Franz Jalics SJ.

This style is also called a school for meditation rooted in the personal lived experience of Fr. Franz Jalics SJ and his retreat work as Director of Haus Gries Retreat House which he founded in Germany in 1984.

Franz Jalics says,

‘There are many paths to contemplation.  I show you one of them. I’m conscious of the fact that God leads many people to contemplation without any external help. Frequently he uses natural circumstances. A simple life of love, some years on a sickbed, a brush with death, the leaving of one’s homeland in order to live among the poor, and other events can lead to contemplation. I do not want to exalt my way above others. On the contrary I am very happy that they exist and I appreciate them. I myself have walked the way I describe: should it help someone else to find his or her way I am satisfied.’
